Just when it seems that Omri's adventures with magical keys, cupboards and time-travel can't possibly continue, they do, in this fifth exciting book of this informal series. It's as fresh and inventive as the others, made even more so by the author's own rendition. Banks brings each character and situation alive with a variety of vocalizations and dramatic inflections. At times, she overacts a bit, but it's hardly a distraction, given the overall quality of the presentation. This is one time when the author's creativity as a writer meshes beautifully with her ability to perform at the mike. J.J.F. (c) AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/JAN 00]
